Railstars match cancelled


Reigning netball Super League champions Railstars will be out of action today as their league match against Stanbic Thunder that had been set for Raylton Sports Club has been cancelled.

Stanbic Thunder could not travel to Bulawayo because the Harare side’s drivers are on holiday.

Railstars coach Janota Phiri yesterday confirmed that the match had been cancelled.

The Bulawayo team last week played two matches in Harare and walloped Rainbow 89-6 before beating Stanbic Thunder 49-29.

In the past, Harare teams have been reluctant to come to Bulawayo to fulfil their league matches against Railstars, the only team from the Southern Region in the national league.

The two matches in Harare were a good outing for Railstars after a fortnight of inactivity in the league due to the continued cancellation of their home games.

Several teams have cancelled league matches intended for Bulawayo citing different reasons which have been attributed to transport problems.

Phiri said maybe the continued cancellation of their games was as a result of their good performance.

“I think some of the games are cancelled because we are playing very well and winning all the games. We have good team work and the players are very committed. Maybe that is why teams are failing to come to play against us at home,” he said.

Railstars have been dominating the league and they top the log standings with 32 points from 16 games.
